Excerpt: I use this to take videos of R/C model airplane building in my workshop and flying at various contests here on the east coast. This camera has more than enough features to allow me to take still closeups as well as distance shots with rapidly moving aircraft, in almost all outside and inside lighting conditions. Just using the camera in "Auto" mode produces spectacular videos and very little editing has to be done to remove camera induced errors.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom
Excerpt: The picture is really sharp. Well balanced when shooting without a tripod. The only thing I don't like is that you can not open the LCD if you have a attachment on the front shoe. I would buy again. B&H did an outstanding job processing my order and shipping it on time.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality
Excerpt: Using for educational institution. From sports to lectures, and everything in between, the SDI output makes this camera an excellent camera for ENG and streaming applications. Very good in ow light, and fairly bullet proof, this camera is hard to beat at this price point.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Camera For Streamin, Great For Streaming, Great Steming Camera
Excerpt: Use this for professional recording and am very pleased with the HD quality. Recommend the accessory flash drive to go with it for dual recording on SD Cards (provides back-up in case of card failure in addition to any other back-up you're using).
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
Summary: I am a professional videographer, video editor, 3D animator, effects compositor, graphic and web designer, and voice artist with about 15+ years of experience. This is my first purchase of my own for shooting video and I was under a tight budget. Even though I did my due diligence and homework, I was still worried that this wouldn't work for me. Within three days of arrival I took it on a two day shoot and it performed like a CHAMP! Easy to use, very customizable.
